Six Types of Construction Projects - Key Differences for Owners & Contractors

Six Types of Construction Projects - Key Differences for Owners & Contractors

Posted: October 26, 2023 | Project Management

Construction projects are often categorized based on their scale, the types of structures being built, and the purpose of the project (also called “end use” or “land use”). Broadly, there are six types of construction projects: residential, commercial, institutional, mixed-use, industrial, and heavy civil.

Project management software creates a single source of truth for planning, execution, and monitoring, giving owners and contractors alike real-time visibility into the data they need to manage their resources more efficiently – on any type of construction project. Advanced tools can also integrate with specialized platforms for tasks such as building information modeling (BIM), cost estimation, and risk assessment, providing a comprehensive solution for managing the entire lifecycle of a construction project.

Mission-Critical Building Makeovers: Design Considerations For Adaptive Reuse Projects 

Mission-Critical Building Makeovers: Design Considerations For Adaptive Reuse Projects 

Posted: October 6, 2023 | Project Management

While adaptive reuse has grown in popularity over the last decade, it’s especially important to consider pros and cons when determining whether to apply this approach to mission-critical facilities. Community public safety buildings are multi-purpose and meant to sustain both day-to-day activities and emergency situations. As a result, it’s essential to understand the benefits and potential drawbacks of adaptive reuse to determine whether it’s the best fit.

The goal for construction projects is to maximize the bottom line. Analyzing whether new construction beats renovation, or vice versa, lends itself to reviewing some fundamental elements of real estate development. To some extent, a “pro” vote for one choice is not necessarily a “con” for the other choice.

Eight Emerging Occupiers Entering the Office Scene

Eight Emerging Occupiers Entering the Office Scene

Posted: September 15, 2023 | Project Management

Over the past few years, we have been introduced to “The Art of the Possible.” We have faced two major questions: “How can your business and portfolio become more agile to the ebbs and flows of change?” and “What does this mean for space and occupancy?” For occupiers, it means re-evaluating their space needs and implementing a unique return-to-office solution that aligns with their services, products, and employees. For landlords, it involves redefining their portfolio and asset strategy. 

One solution that is making waves is adaptive reuse. Adaptive reuse is the process of repurposing an existing building for a different use than its original design or intended purpose. It entails taking a structure that may have become obsolete or vacant and transforming it into something new and functional. In the context of office buildings, adaptive reuse can be a compelling approach, particularly in the revitalization of communities and sustainability of spaces.
